Very good app for Garmin 5x. It works very well and I am able to check my v02 max improvement using a treadmill during indoor training session. Great work! Keep going on! Why it is not possible to overwrite the garmin v02max value with your value? Or better, how about to let the user know the new value after each training session asking if he/she wants to overwrite the new value into the garmin vo2 max field?

Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, the overwriting of the VO2 data is not allowed by Garmin, although it could be great ! Maybe in the future...

Hi, I'm using Forerunner 935 & sync it with an Android phone. How do i set to display this datafield once I've downloaded the Apps? The steps givens below seems not applicable for my devices.
*This is a data field not an application and needs to be added to a single data screen within a sport activity.
1- go to settings, apps, sport activity, data screen, screen 1
2- set layout to 1 field
3- set field 1 to ConnectIQ Fields, JMGDTFRunningVO2

Hello and thanks for your comment. The procedure is absolutely applicable for your device (like many others). Just open a sport activity, normally the running app (or create a new one), select a screen and configure it by selecting the one field layout then, select the IQ app choice and select this DF, save changes, you should have the DF displayed within this activity. Note that this procedure should be mentioned in your device manual.

Love this data field, great app to give me a good VO2max read out.
Minor gripe....the data field is not showing in Garmin Connect after syncing the Fenix3HR to my iPhone

Really fantastic data field for running!!! Big thanks!!! But Is it possible to make something like this for getting VO2 datas from indoors strength activities or indoors mountain climbing? And would be good also to put there the count of activity steps with saving them in fit-file, because Garmin removed it from GC at all:-(

This doesn't seem to work: the VO2 curve is just a scaled version of my pace. I get maximum VO2 when running downhill and not working hard at all, while VO2 drops a lot when I run uphill and my heart rate is way up.

Awesome data field!!! I don't normally do reviews, but I'm making an exception for this. I'm an older guy trying to stay in shape, and keep the weight I lost (125 pounds) off. I love to run, but have to do all my running on a treadmill with a cushioned deck to save my knees and hips. This data field gives me what Garmin won't, a good estimate of my VO2 Max while treadmill running. I like knowing what my VO2 Max is, and have watching it improve. Thanks for the awesome Data Field!!!

I have a Garmin 235 and haven't gotten a VO2 max reading from it after having it for almost a couple months.
So thanks for making an app where I can finally see some of that data.
I have injuries so I do most of my workouts on the elliptical. Does this app use a formula for deriving the VO2 max that is compatible with elliptical workouts?
Also, is this the type of app that will learn over time, increasing in accuracy as it goes?
I got a mean VO2 of 16 something and a max of 61..which I'm not thinking is very accurate. That was just from a 10 minutes walk/run.

Works good on Garmin 735XT.

Les données ne s'affichent plus dans Garmin Connect depuis la dernière mise à jour de Garmin Connect. Pouvez-vous y remédier ?

The best VO2 Max data field ever, with detail information about our running condition.
October 11, 2017 | Version 1.39
Hi I like / love your data field! Its show realistic VO2 value. Its a must! E.g. for treadmill. But I don't understand how I can use the saved fit file. Its marked to save into fit, of course. But I see no diagram or value under the run event? I had try to synchronized over the mobile app (ios), wifi and Garmin Express my Fenix 5. What can do with the fit file and where is it, in a folder?
October 10, 2017 | Version 1.39
I really like this app. However, it crashes after about 23 minutes of exercise. Can this be fixed? I will gladly give a 5-star if this issue is fixed.

Thanks for your comment and sorry for this issue. Can you contact me by email in order to know your device and settings used by the app, thanks in advance.

Hello GJFN and thanks for your comment. There is no report of trouble at all with this DF so, if you experience difficulties with it, I invite you to send me an email with a detailed description of your problem (eventually with screen captures) so, I will be able able to help you to find a solution.
August 18, 2017 | Version 1.24
works fine in garmin 735xt...it gives me a better result than vO2max calculated by garmin but it's ok because this value of this app is the same with the one measured in ergometric test i have done!
August 14, 2017 | Version 1.24
Unfortunately the app doesn't show VO2 in real time, it has shown constant 0,12 yesterday. Am I misunderstood anything related the using of the app?
August 12, 2017 | Version 1.24
Sorry, but diuring run, the letters of this app on my watch Fenix 3, are unreadibel for me. Is it possible to enlarge them?
August 8, 2017 | Version 1.22
Very good with new features. Only a tip, if you accept it. Add the chance to add the final cardiac drift as summary at the end of workout (on Connect of course). Drif is important related to long run (it's a nonsense, imho, use drift in interval workout for example) so to have it as simple value in connect at the end of workout should be great. No need of graph, imho, only the final value. Thanks.
August 8, 2017, Surfy66
Thanks Sergio for your nice comment. I will do all my best to add this data in the summary, sure !
August 3, 2017 | Version 1.20
Very good app, nice to have it. thank you. I will try it more from now on!
August 2, 2017 | Version 1.20
Very useful app !! Should be great to add, to have a complete view of the cardiovascular fitness, the cardiac drift too. With these features (vo2 e cardiac drift) together will be a killer application !!
August 2, 2017, Surfy66
Hello Sergio, and many thanks for your comment. It is a great suggestion, and I will try to add this feature soon, if possible. I need time to think about calculating and coding it.
July 17, 2017 | Version 1.16
Hello, you have a wonderful IQ, would have the option to be able to configure the speed that instead of km / h was in min / km ???
hola, tienes una IQ maravillosa, habria la opcion de poder configurar la velocidad que en vez de km/h fuese en min/km ???
July 19, 2017, Surfy66
Hello and thanks for your comment. Your suggestion is already available in the new release 1.17, min/km or min/miles depending the watch settings.
July 12, 2017 | Version 1.11
thanks a lot for doing a good job and that you implement also cooper test.
thats great, but do you think is possible to show countdown timer of cooper test somwehere? "Nice to have" will be estimator of copper test results before reach 12minutes what can be caluculated like = current time in s *(goal time in s/current distance in m)
July 13, 2017, Surfy66
Hello wizz and thanks for your comment. Your suggestions are already coded and available in the new release 1.15. Hope you will like it.

No lo he usado pero hace mucho que buscaba una funcionalidad como esta. Según veo en los comentarios es muy buena y ya estoy ansioso por usarla.
I have not used it but it has long been looking for functionality like this. As I see in the comments is very good and I am already anxious to use it.
Best Regards from Dominican Republic

This App is great. Does what it is supposed to do. Yet the calculation für V02 seems to be somewhat off. Every other app on the market says my V02 average is between 52 and 49. Yet this app calculates it between 39 and 40. When I am running fast it switches to 67+. So this is very confusing for me.
July 12, 2017, Surfy66
Hello Lukas and thanks for your comment. This DF is intended to calculate your VO2 max and the average of each VO2 max, but absolutely not your average VO2 during your session. So, 67 VO2 max with this DF for a known calculated average VO2 between 49 and 52 seems to be some quite coherent.
July 7, 2017 | Version 1.06
I'm very happy with this widget really good work. but I would like to ask you, if it is possible to add cooper test countdown (12min or adjustable) with vybration on end. as currently i need to use 2 datafiled and theres no space for third on my Vivoactive HR.
July 7, 2017, Surfy66
Hello and thanks for your comment. I am afraid it will be difficult to add this functionality to this data field as it almost reaches the memory limit of 16 Ko on certain models, like VivoHR. And yes, we are all a little bit frustrated with this two IQ apps limitation, even on Fenix 5 ! So, I will try, but without promise... However, I guess I can easily add it in the new simple similar data field you can find here https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/feb5b413-e938-46cf-acb3-be91bfb9a37e. Will try the two combinations.

Very useful data field for runners. Nice to have "real time" access to VO2 max during workout. The balance between highest VO2 max of the current (or previous) session and the current VO2 is very motivating when training.
Works very well on Fenix 3 HR, once installed. The only limitation is the difficulty to access to highest VO2 Max and average VO2 Max after the workout. Hopping that could be solved in next release.
Very good support, with quick answer to requests.
Thansk for this app.
Un champ de données très utile pour les coureurs. Super d'avoir accès à sa VO2 Max durant les sorties. L’accès simultané de la valeur la plus élevée durant la session (ou la session précédente) et la valeur courante est très motivante pendant un entrainement.
Fonctionne très bien sur Fénix 3 HR, après installation correcte. La seule limitation réside dans la difficulté d'accès à la valeur VO2 Max et VO2 Max moyenne après une sortie. En espérant une solution de ce bug dans une prochaine version.
Une support sympathique, rapide et efficace quelle que soit la question.
Merci pour cette app.
